Hi Bev, great to hear from you, just such a shame about the circumstances!!.
Your post about your friend, the ex squaddie is so typical of our Govts ingratitude to those from ordinary backgrounds who serve this Country. Had he been 'somebody' no doubt he would have been helped to find a decent job, get all his 'benefits' sorted out, somewhere to live etc., etc., and your comment that you think he went back to prison because he had a place to sleep and eat, is something that really does go on.
Please send him my support, and I wish some of our "Prisoner Charities" would get involved to help this guy out.
